Shuriken/Throwing Star

How to make a shuriken/throwing star. You’ll need 2 square papers, it doesn’t matter how big they are as long as they’re the same size. Once folded the tips are actually very sturdy and pointy, if you manage to lodge one in somebody’s eye you’ll be in trouble.

They’re great because it takes less than a minute to make and they fly very far and accurately if thrown right. The heavier the shuriken is the further it will fly, basic momentum principles apply.

As for throwing techniques… I’ll let you figure out that one on your own.

Paper to use

You’ll need 2 square papers, doesn’t matter what size. The most common printing paper is fine.
